As a real estate attorney, Ari Shaeps plays an integral role in the progress and development of buildings from their ground breaking to the completion of construction; he takes pride in knowing that the Allen Matkins team helps guide every aspect of the project. Ari’s practice focuses on complex commercial and residential development, including all facets of design and construction. He has worked on nearly $7 billion in construction contracts all over the West Coast, including iconic projects like San Francisco’s Salesforce Tower.
His experience also includes a wide range of real estate and commercial issues, including the review, analysis, and preparation of documents associated with acquisition and leasing transactions, and he has also guided clients through litigation. Clients call upon Ari for counsel on business issues in addition to real estate issues because of his deep industry knowledge and his experience working with nearly all of California’s major design firms and contractors.
